Judge Lebogang Modiba is the guest on this episode of Insight For Living. Our host Zandile Makula speaks to the High Court Judge, as she shares the story of her journey.
In the first video, Judge Modiba educates us on what a Judge’s role actually entails. She says “The office of the Judge is a part of one of three arms of government. The government consist of three different arms being The Judiciary – where Judges belong, The Executive – made up of the President and all the Heads of Cabinet, as well as the Legislature- Members of Parliament. The Judge’s responsibility is to interpret and apply the laws made by Parliament and administered by the Executive. Judges play a very important role because we are the final arbiter on most issues.” Watch the video for more:
